The Answers To Your Summer Hair Problems

Summer is almost here. This is the season for sun, fun, and beachy waved hair. But there are those who get greasy, limp, frizzy, or even brittle hair.

We have listed down the problems that this season can bring to your hair and what you can do to solve them.

Chlorine Water. This can really change your hair colour, especially if you have lighter locks. It can also make your hair very brittle. Soak your hair with plain water before you jump into the pool. The plain water will bind to your hair making it harder for the chlorine to get in. You can also use a leave in conditioner to achieve the same results. Then follow with a hair mask to repair damage and seal the cuticle.

Greasy hair. The sunscreen you’ve put on your back and shoulders makes hair dirtier. So washing your hair more often is fine, especially if it’s longer.

Sun damaged hair. The sun breaks down strong keratin bonds causing weaker strands and fading colour. To protect your tresses, use a UV hair product, then add a leave in conditioner.

Frizz. Use anti-frizz serum or spray and silicone-based products to tame frizz and smoothen your hair. Stay away from heavy products as well.

Now you’re ready for summer.

8 Wedding Hairstyles To Match Your Gown’s Neckline

One-Shoulder Neckline
With an asymmetrical neckline, or single-shoulder gown, there are a couple of attractive hairstyle options. Side-swept curls or a braid or pony will cover your bare shoulder and balance the neckline, whereas an updo will focus attention on the stylish cut of the dress. A mussed beehive adds volume and glamour while contrasting with the gown’s architectural lines. Sweep your bangs off to one side to mirror the dress’s shape.

Bateau Neckline
The boat, or “bateau,” neckline skims along the collarbone to show only the faintest hint of skin. To suit this design, have your hair up and off the face in either a cropped cut with finger waves or a low updo in a soft, feminine style. If you have long tresses, secure the bulk of hair at the nape of your neck. A row of decorative bobby pins, a brooch or a barrette will add a little flash when pinned at the side or to the back of the hair.

Off-The-Shoulder Neckline
An ivory dress with ruched straps pushed off the shoulders is pure class. A smooth and simple updo radiates elegance and draws attention to one body part that never gets flabby: the shoulders. We like a deep side part and strands so shiny you can see your reflection. A tight knot or chignon is a mature option for a sophisticated style.

Strapless Dress
Strapless, the choice of many brides, looks exquisite with loose, flowing locks. This type of hairstyle adds versatility in photographs, as hair can be pushed off shoulders or pulled over to offer more coverage. A perfect side part and soft waves will add a princess quality to your look without going over the top. A slightly wet appearance at the roots adds a modern twist.

Square Neckline
The square neck is a no-fuss cut that can reveal almost as much skin as a strapless and shows off a beautiful collarbone and décolleté. This dress suits a modern bouffant hairstyle with a thin headband and volume at the crown. The look is perfect for the bride that wants to dial up the glam.

V-Neckline
An updo paired with a V-shaped neckline will elongate your neck, making you appear tall and lean. The lace on this gown adds a romantic flair, so choose a hairstyle to match. The mid-part and braided circlet offer a regal element to the look, as well as the perfect place to clip in your veil—no tiara necessary.

High-Collared
A high neckline is an atypical choice that will make a refined statement. Hair should be pinned up to show off the gown in all its glory and loose, carefree waves to contrast with the ladylike collar. This style should look textured, as though you just stepped from the ocean and twisted your strands up yourself. Allow short tendrils to escape around your ears.

Scoop Neckline
A low scoop neck reveals cleavage, especially when enhanced with a hidden corset. A simple style and thin straps goes best with long, straight tresses and a sleek blunt bang. To nail the look, hair must be ultra shiny. No flyways; not a hair out of place. Admittedly, the pairing is a little more Hollywood than wedding, but that’s a good thing!

The Importance Of Vitamin C

The Importance Of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is important to your health, which is why you’re always advised to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables.

But did you know that Vitamin C is also a fighter against aging?

This powerful antioxidant slows free radical damage, those pesky, unstable molecules that damage collagen, cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles.

So choose products that carry Vitamin C. But beware, Vitamin C is unstable. If it is poorly prepared, the benefits are lost.

However, you can rest assured that the vitamin C we carry has been carefully prepared, preserving its powerful benefits.

How To Get The Perfect Tan

How To Get The Perfect Tan

In getting the perfect spray tan, there are a few tips we can give you to achieve it.

• Lightly exfoliate your body three days before your appointment. Getting the old skin off allows your tan to easily penetrate newer skin for a smooth look.

• Moisturize! Make sure your skin has plenty of moisture prior to the spray tan application. This will allow even saturation of the product

• If you shave your legs, do it the night before. Shaving right after your tan can shorten the life of it.

• Skip perfume, deodorant, or body sprays. Don’t wear anything that could be a barrier resulting in stains or spots.

• Wear loose dark clothing. On the day of the spray tan, wear old clothing, preferably dark. The spray tan will come off on your clothes. Wear old pajamas to bed that night as well.

And don’t get anywhere near water for 8 hours after the application to allow the tan to set.

Follow these rules and everyone will envy your beautifully tanned skin.

Do You Want Beautiful Curls?

Do You Want Beautiful Curls?

There is a trick to having big, bouncy curls or lots of Bohemian-style waves.

Start in the shower. Use a shampoo and conditioner designed to enhance waves.

Add a curling mousse to promote body and wave if you have naturally straight hair. If you’ve got some natural wave or curl, use a styling milk followed by a frizz-fighting serum instead.

For straight-haired girls, move the dryer all around while running your fingers through your hair. Do not smooth it out to maintain as much body as possible.

For curlier hair, use a diffuser to bring out as much natural curl as possible.

Choose the curling iron size for the look you want. Divide hair into sections, starting in the back.

Spray each section with a light hold hair spray.

Hold the curling iron vertically (like a ribbon around a stick). Hold for a few seconds and release.

Follow with a light finishing spray to hold waves.

If you already have some natural wave, use a curling iron to smooth out frizzy sections or to enhance those areas that need a bit more wave or curl.
